I don’t have any special occasions coming up. No birthdays, no weddings, no baby showers or bridal showers but it is spring, so I felt like making something colorful for the house so I made this coffee filter pom pom garland.

A few weeks ago I shared how easy it was to dye coffee filters with food coloring and after that, I had a bunch of dyed filters lying around so this was the next step for them. 😉

Stack approximately 8 dyed coffee filters on top of one another,

Intersperse 2 to 4 plain white coffee filters among the dyed ones.

Next, you can either eye up the center of the coffee filters or fold them in half. I folded mine in half. I’m not a good guesser!

Once you have an idea of where the center is, gently roll the edges into the center so that you can staple through all of the layers.

Make a very small hole near the staple through all layers.

String for coffee filter pom pom garland

Pass a length of twine through the hole in the center of your pom pom and make a knot to hold the pom pom in place and keep it from sliding around.

Gently pull each layer of the coffee filter toward the string in each direction (front and back) squeezing and shaping to give the look of a flower.
